I was at the viewing area near the end of the runway at Brisbane airport round 5.45 pm today (awaiting the arrival of a Victorian birder) when I noticed a lone Apostebird walking around the car park. Apostlebirds are somewhat uncommon inside the Scenic Rim before so observed it with interest (from a distance of 5 metres).

Being a family-oriented bird, it was obviously feeling isolated. It had developed an association with a Crested Pigeon and was following it around like a juvenile following its parent.

It begs the question as to what circumstances would result in a lone apostle at the airport ...

Regards, Laurie.
